Professor Dr. İrfan Suat Günsel: “Taking part as a player in the global market, we aim to contribute to the national economy…”
Near East University Chairman of Board of Trustees, Prof. Dr. İrfan Suat Günsel, making explanations regarding the cooperation agreements with 800 suppliers from 28 countries, said that the domestic and foreign agreements made are of great importance for the TRNC and Turkey’s automobile industry, and that the mass production of GÜNSEL will seriously contribute to the employment and economic developments of our country, and emphasized that a major place will be taken in the electric car industry in the world.

Prof. Dr. Irfan Suat Günsel in his statement emphasized that there are many automotive giants in the world, but none of them was able to produce all the parts of their cars in their own countries and there are gigantic companies producing the car parts in the world, and that their ultimate aim is to produce most of the parts of GÜNSEL in TRNC and Turkey. Prof. Dr. İrfan Suat Günsel “We want to cooperate with domestic and foreign companies, both to produce unique vehicles for us and to ensure the development of a supplier sector in our country. It is not possible for all parts to be produced only in our country. Therefore, by making cooperation with our suppliers in Turkey, we want to create a synergy and also benefit from the experience of these companies”.

Prof. Dr. İrfan Suat Günsel, explaining that GÜNSEL was produced by combining the experience of the companies with a comprehensive synergy study attaching importance to safety, lightness, fuel-saving and by the use of composite materials complying with international environmental norms, said “Based on the strategy of localizing the production of electric vehicles, domestic and international suppliers will produce the parts of “GÜNSEL”, which is planned to be put up for sale in 2021 with mass production. I wish these important agreements to be beneficial for our country and companies.”
